Irvine (CA) Unified School District signed a seven-year optical networking contract with AT&T. The company will implement an Optical Ethernet Metropolitan Area Network (OPT-E-MAN) to support bandwidth-intensive applications such as video streaming and distance learning at 32 locations throughout the district. The OPT-E-MAN service will provide schools with a single reliable network, as well as a converged solution for streamlined communications district-wide.
